Apologies for the noob-sounding question, but please bear with me...

I want to suggest a Spawn Sound effect, but I have no idea how one goes about creating the icon. I presume it involves opening a picture of that cabinet shelf you see in spawn rooms in Photoshop or GIMP, and then adding a picture that's related to the sound you are suggesting in front of it, right? The thing is though, I have no idea where to get a proper picture of that cabinet shelf. Someone mind pointing me in the right direction? Thanks in advance.

Scroll down until the second post where you need to open up the list of templates, then the list of other templates where the resupply cabinet will be there.

For creating the other part of the icons, you can usually get away with using a zero hardness brush around the edges of whatever you're using to get rid of backgrounds and such before shrinking that section to fit into the template properly.

Or just ask one of the devs (namely @RatX150 or @bostonJunkie) to fix one up for you. Either works.
